AS CITIZEN INVESTIGATORS CLOSE IN ON EVIDENCE SHOWING SECRET DEALINGS TO SUPPORT UNSUBSTANTIATED OBAMA CLAIMS
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 20, 2010) — The Honolulu Advertiser is reporting that the Hawaii Department of Health continues to receive between 40 and 50 requests each month for Obama’s birth certificate in light of the many questions surrounding his birth, parentage and background. The state’s Uniform Information Practices Act reads, “Government agencies exist to aid the people in the formation and conduct of public policy. Opening up the government processes to public scrutiny and participation is the only viable and reasonable method of protecting the public’s interest.”
However, birth certificates are protected as confidential by the statute unless the requester can prove that he or she meets specific criteria.
